This engine uses a timing chain, chains require no replacement unless the engine is being repaired or the chain or spockets fail

Of course, if your timing gears or chain fail, the engine will suffer significant damage, with valves hitting pistons and bending. Broken rocker arms and even lifters jammed into the head can be a very expensive repair.

Timing chains on these engines probably should be replaced around the 200K miles mark - when a mechanic replaces the valve cover gaskets he should take a light and inspect the chain guides. If they have significant wear they should be replaced.

Excessive chain noise and plastic bits in the engine oil are also signs of an impending chain failure, but you won't have much warning.

Where is the water pump located on a 2001 olds. Intrigue?


If the engine is sideways, it would be located on the left side of the engine by the belts. See if a hose is hooked up to it.

How do you get the pully cover off the water pump for 2000 olds intrigue. removed the 4 bolts and it does not come off.


Hello: Something doesn't sound correct. Is the water pump driven by the belt that drives the alternator, a/c compressor and power steering pump? If so the you may have to tap on it with a hammer to break it loose from the engine. Make sure you clean all the old gasket off before installing the replacement.

I have a Oldsmobile v6 intrigue. my old tensioner broke but i replace it. and now im trying to put back on the belt. do i need to losing the generator or anything else to tighten the timing belt?


Is it the timing belt or the generator/alternator belt? If you're talking about the alternator/generator belt. The new tensioner should have a square hole that you can fit a half inch driver like a ratchet or a pull bar into to hole it back and install the belt.
